Form C Disclosures for Crowdfunding

Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Equity crowdfunding is a regulated fundraise by FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.

A company can raise up to $5M on equity crowdfunding.

Anyone can invest. Those who are not accredited investors are limited to $2,200 per year per company.

Those raising funding must file a Form C with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The company raising funding must be based in the US.

The Form C requires the following information:

  • The biographies of officers and directors and anyone owning more than 20% of the company.
  • A description of the business and what it does.
  • How the raised funds will be used.
  • The method for calculating the price of the security.
  • The target fundraise amount and the deadline for raising it.
  • A description of the company’s financial condition.
  • Financial statements of the company.

In preparing for an equity crowdfunding raise, you’ll need to provide this information for compliance purposes.
